This office sucks. You can never get anyone on the line when you press 1 for English and sometimes you can get someone on the line if you press 2 for Spanish. No one wants to help out the ACTUAL needy...but those who are mooching off the system get free handouts. Thanks Allentown for being the worst place I've ever lived. Thank god I am moving in March!

I do not like this allentown office..... When they screw up something that you need so bad and then you have to pay for it by waiting and waiting..... I'm so mad because you screwed up my stuff and not only are my kids going with out because of you but I cannot get a hold of you.... I do not want to talk to a customer service person I want to talk to you directly...... I sent 6 tickets out and to u guys have yet to fix the problem..... Very very horrible place.... No respect and no consideration for the people that need things here the most.... Thanks for nothing and I really think you guys read this and change for the better......
